One of the superstars of the ’80s and beyond, the Ferrari Testarossa is the epitome of advanced engineering, aggressive styling, and performance to burn. Design chief, Leonardo Fioravanti of Pininfarina combined both form and function in designing the Ferrari Testarossa which leaped to the center stage of the automotive world in 1984 at the Paris Auto Show and remained there for 11 years as the world’s fastest regular production car. It was the definition of ‘supercar’ in its era, the innovative benchmark against which all contemporary sports cars were measured. As the flagship Ferrari of its day, the performance on offer was truly impressive. A notable 380 horsepower launched the supercar to 60mph in just 5.3 seconds, and to a top speed of 180mph. In 1992 production of the Testarossa ceased after almost 7200 units were sold, making it one of the most popular Ferrari models ever.
